 Kubota B6000 Hedge Trimmer Attachment

Hello Kubota Fans
I am trying to find a source for a mini reciprocating blade type hedge trimmer to hang on the back or side of my Kubota B6000. Has anyone any experience - I live in a part of the UK where the climate ensures that garden hedges grow far too quickly.
Regards from JJ

When you say "hang" do mean "attach" like a tool so that you can drive and trim? If yes there are many products on the market. Stihl makes a nice one, as does Echo, Shindaiwa, and a host of others. Most come as powerhead with interchangable tools ranging from blowers, to rototillers, to hedge trimmers, to chainsaw-type trimmers.

I am searching around for a hedge cutter/trimmer with a reciprocating blade for a Kubota B6000 or similar. It will naturally be driven by the tractor via oil or belt drive. I hope that this explains my vision a bit better.
Regards

It sounds like you need a hay cutter/mower or sickle mower. I'd mount it on a mast or crane off the 3pt hitch.

I have researched this for my own purpose of making a pond weed (cattails) cutter on a 25' long boom. I found that there are many old ones out there--some PTO powered some hydraulic, but were either too costly, too heavy, or too extensive to modify for my needs.

I ended up building mine literally from scratch. I use a small hydraulic motor. It's still under development, but preliminary trials show it will work well.

Thanks for the info.
I have acquired a rape vertical side-cutter for a combine harvester. It is a double sickle blade type and is driven by a hydraulic motor but unfortunately it needs about 8 gallons per minute of oil to run properly - My Kubota B6000 oil supply is a bit short on gpm!
Hence the search for one already designed and marketed.
Regards - JJ

I don't know what a rape is...

But, you could shorten or cut the sickle bar down, and use a smaller displacement motor which will need less GPM.

EW; Rape could be the brand name of the sickle attachment, or it could be a an atttachment designed to harvest rape. Rape is a forage crop from cooler climates. You have to go to about the fifth page of Google before they list it as a crop. They list Canola as being a realitive of rape. I didn't know that part, but I did know of rape as a field crop. Frank.

Okay, I have heard the term or name as in "Rape seed extract"--I think it's used in beverages and possibly shampoo.

EW; Maybe the reason they use it in shampoo is to be a brain stimulant. Wanna share a case with me? Frank.

Thanks for your advice. I was off-line yesterday as it was my Sabbath day and only picked up your lines this morning. Rape is a yellow flowered oil-seed crop grown here in the UK for cattle cake and also for bio-fuel (diesel). It is usually very tangled and therefore needs a vertical cutter blade on the combine harvester on the crop side to get through it.
Happy Christmas to all - JJ
